Correct Answer

Deforestation

Solution

The correct options are
A Breaking down of drainage systems
B Administrative issues in light of increase in population
C Overgrazing
D Deforestation
As was the case with a number of civilisations across history, things went wrong for the Indus Valley Civilisation despite their careful organisation and attention to detail. An increasing population made administration difficult. Garbage then piled up on the streets, while drainage systems broke down and houses were built on roads. The green cover around was destroyed by a combination of overgrazing and deforestation.
